Configuring kernel for Aztech Sound Galaxy Pro 16

   Hi,

I having problems getting my Aztech Sound Galaxy Pro16 card
to work with Linux.   This is not at pnp-card.

The facts:
The card is configured as follows: "wave port base Address"
530, "SG/MIDI base address" 220, irq 7 and DMA 1.  
In the system-resources of the control panel of Win95 I see
that appart from the addressed above, address 388 and
irq 11 are also used.
I don't find anything about that in the manual.

Reading howtos and old postings via dejanews I learned that
my card should work fine configuring the kernel for
MicrosoftSoundSystem.

I tried several (about 20 -- the compiling took ages on my
486 :-( ) configurations but I never had any Midi device
working.  I also suspect my audio device (there is one if I
configure MSS with 530, 7) to use only 8 bit sound.  I was
told that there should be 2 audio devices: one 8 and one
16-bit.

Who can help me to configure this card?

I suggest you do the following:
1. Download evaluation copy of OSS - Open Sound System from:
http://www.4front-tech.com/oss.html
2. compile the kernel without sound support and install OSS
3. check /dev/sndstat for the right settings for your card
4. compile the kernel with these settings.

Warning: your Linux may need different settings from these
that you use on Windoze and this may be the only way to
find them.

good luck

Great!  This solved my problem!  I heard about 4fron-tech before
but I didn't knew I could use it to determin the settings.

Thankx!
